One of the highest-grossing shopping centers in the country is only a short drive away from the DDC Group, Inc offices! As this shopping center has seen a great amount of success welcoming over 20 million visitors last year (more than the Great Wall of China or Disneyland), its 575,000 square-feet was built ready to bring in the most sales per square foot! Take a look at the entrepreneur behind it all.
The Grove pulses with style, warmth, and excitement, which is why the world’s leading brands and personalities come here to launch their latest creations and engage their fans and Rick Caruso has taken his lessons into the way he runs his business.
Caruso has stated that the future of retail is dependent on the importance of catering to the community.
And Caruso saw that one of the main reasons that visitors leave the retail property is because of empty stomachs and full hands, that is why Caruso has incorporated 25 concierges to make dinner reservations and bring packages to shoppers’ cars!
Moreover, the Grove’s 58 stores and restaurants welcomed over 20 million visitors last year, which was more than the Great Wall of China or Disneyland and has demonstrated that success by bringing in $2,200 sales per square foot and has become the second most productive shopping center in the nation!
Caruso has always focused on bringing a sense of community by creating a place where people spend their whole day shopping, dining, and connecting with loved ones while strolling through the property.
If you want to be the next retailer to move into The Grove, then you’d have to wait approximately three years, as the waiting list continues to grow!
